Creating The New Doctor
♦ The new season of Doctor Who started on Sunday and here’s a behind the scenes video on it from BBC America…
This is the episode synopsis: ‘We don’t get aliens in Sheffield.’ In a South Yorkshire city, Ryan Sinclair, Yasmin Khan and Graham O’Brien are about to have their lives changed for ever, as a mysterious woman, unable to remember her own name, falls from the night sky. Can they believe a word she says? And can she help solve the strange events taking place across the city?
This series marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the Thirteenth Doctor – a super-smart force of nature, alongside a team of new and delightful characters. This series is full of action and adventure, humour and thrills – an unmissable drama everyone will enjoy.
Alongside Jodie’s Thirteenth Doctor, is an all new cast with Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole.
Showrunner, Chris Chibnall, said: “Finally – Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor is about to crash land on to the nation’s screens. It’s thrilling to think, in the next few weeks and months, there will be children encountering Jodie’s Doctor in the next few weeks who’ve never seen the show before. She’ll be forever their Doctor: you never forget your first.
Alongside Jodie, we have a delightful ensemble of new characters for the audience to fall in love with, led by the incomparable Bradley Walsh.
So break out the popcorn and hunker down for Sunday night adventures in space and time, with the Thirteenth Doctor and her new best friends. The journey’s about to begin.”
